General Election Expenses by Dartford Candidates Revealed
The details of the local expenditure on the recent general election are available from Dartford Council offices. They show the Conservative and Labour candidates spent considerably more (they had also started the campaign some time before the election was called), and this doesn't even count the national expenditure, for example posters in Princes Road. It appears the Conservatives had more volunteers as they appear to have spent less on delivery than Labour and the Liberals. Other publicity included balloons, posters, placards and badges. The English Democrats hired a battle bus, while one candidate used a megaphone, and no prizes for guessing who spent money on costume hire!

Conservative £14,900 (incl £4,376 before election) - 207,000 leaflets
Labour £11,346 (incl £2,700 before election) - unknown no of leaflets
LibDem £2,125 - 66,000 leaflets
EngDem £4,240 - 117,000 leaflets
UKIP £1,487 - unknown no of leaflets
Independent - £3,236 - 52,000 leaflets
Fancy Dress - £350 - 1,000 leaflets
